There is new campground in Key Largo for friends and families to cruise through at 5 mph. Keys Palms Luxury RV Resort at MM 104 is gearing up for its upcoming Oct. 1 opening. It’s situated between the Caribbean Club and the Amoray Dive Resort and offers bayfront amenities.
There are 30 RV sites altogether to accommodate class A and fifth-wheel motorhomes. Eight of them are “pull through” sites, meaning no need to back up. Each site has full electric hookups with 30, 50 or 100 amps. Each site has its own paved patio. There is an in-ground pool and Jacuzzi which both are ADA-compliant. There is wifi, a clubhouse and a fitness room available. There is a public men and women’s shower and coin operated laundry facilities. The site is secure and gated; visitors will be given remote controls for access.
“You can literally walk to go get something to eat, go out for drinks, even go out diving. We’re so close to everything,” said Glenn Cronin, the general manager.
Cronin said that they’re in the permitting phase of 25 dock slips directly in front of the park. Eventually, this will allow patrons to use the boat ramp directly next door at the Caribbean Club. If plans go accordingly, longer-term RV-goers can park their trailers at the Trailer Shop north of the site at MM 106.
As for reservations, Cronin says there is one client booked for Oct. 1 so far. (Staff only started accepting reservations in mid-August.) Sites will be rented by the night, week or month.
“Well-behaved pets are allowed, but not in the pool or community clubhouse,” Cronin said. “I plan on meeting every visitor and doing an initial walk-through of the site to ensure their comfort.
The location is idyllic and convenient. It’s close to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, nightlife, restaurants, shopping and grocery stories. The grounds are pristine and well kept.
Further down the pipeline, Keys Palms Luxury RV Resort owner, Raul Medina, foresees that it may host weddings. It’s bayfront commodities offer sunset views, the perfect backdrop for taking vows. Considering it’s amenities, location and affordability, its options are endless. For now, its focus remains on getting off the ground and running smoothly to “full-capacity” before embarking on new ventures.
